                             POST-CLOSING AGREEMENT

     THIS POST-CLOSING AGREEMENT (this "Agreement") is made as of the 21st day
of July, 2004, by INLAND WESTERN KILL DEVIL HILLS CROATAN, L.L.C., a Delaware
limited liability company, having its principal place of business at 2901
Butterfield Road, Oak Brook, Illinois 60523 ("Borrower"), to BEAR STEARNS
COMMERCIAL MORTGAGE, INC., a New York corporation, having an address at 383
Madison Avenue, New York, New York 10179 ("Lender").

                                    RECITALS:

     A.    Borrower by its promissory note of even date herewith given to Lender
(the note together with all extensions, renewals, modifications, substitutions
and amendments thereof shall collectively be referred to as the "Note") is
indebted to Lender in the principal sum of ONE MILLION NINE HUNDRED SEVENTY FIVE
THOUSAND AND NO/100 DOLLARS ($1,975,000.00) advanced pursuant to the Loan
Agreement of even date herewith between Borrower, Inland Western Greer Wade
Hampton, L.L.C., a Delaware limited liability company, Inland Western Columbia
Broad River, L.L.C., a Delaware limited liability company, Inland Western
Crossville Main, L.L.C., a Delaware limited liability company and Lender
(together with all extensions, renewals, modifications, substitutions and
amendments thereof, the "Loan Agreement"), in lawful money of the United States
of America, with interest from the date thereof at the rates set forth in the
Note (the indebtedness evidenced by the Note, together with such interest
accrued thereon, shall collectively be referred to as the "Loan"), principal and
interest to be payable in accordance with the terms and conditions provided in
the Note.

     B.    The Loan is secured by, among other things, a Deed of Trust,
Assignment of Leases and Rents, Security Agreement and Fixture Filing (the
"Security Instrument"), dated as of the date hereof, which grants Lender a first
lien on the property encumbered thereby (the "Property"). All and any of the
documents other than the Note, the Security Instrument and this Agreement now or
hereafter executed by Borrower and/or others and by or in favor of Lender, which
wholly or partially secure or guarantee payment of the Note are referred to as
the "Other Security Documents."

     C.    Lender was unwilling to make the Loan to Borrower unless Borrower
agreed to timely perform the matters set forth herein.

                                   AGREEMENT:

     For good and valuable consideration the parties hereto agree as follows:

respects be governed, construed, applied and enforced in accordance with the
laws of the State of New York.

     3.    NOTICES. All notices or other written communications to Borrower or

any number of duplicate originals and each duplicate original shall be deemed to
be an original. This Agreement may be executed in several counterparts, each of
which counterparts shall be deemed an original instrument and all of which

including the Note, the Security Instrument, this Agreement and the Other
Security Documents, or may delegate some or all of such responsibility and/or
obligations to a servicer including, but not limited to, any subservicer or
master servicer. Lender may make such assignment or delegation on behalf of the
Investors if the Note is sold or this Agreement or the Other Security Documents
are assigned. All references to Lender herein shall refer to and include any
such servicer to the extent applicable.
