Is it wise to offer more commission to the agent bringing the buyer?
I don't see it done often, but I don't see anything wrong with the idea in general. An excellent Buyer Agent will help the transaction go smoother.

While during the inspection of a condo the inspector added in the exterior of the building as well as the plumbing located in garage. Is that normal?
