If first floor units are your preference for the reasons you listed and that's fine.
Many buyers think that while steps aren't a problem now, they could be future as they age.
But condos with elevators aren't that concerning. Some people don't like the Idea of someone living above them and others don't want the foot traffic from the other owners.
But it's really dependent on the property, most two story condos offer higher ceilings on the second floor.(vaulted, cathedral) and appear more spacious.
In the high rises on the beach the higher floors offer the most unobstructed views and often command higher prices for higher floors. Many HOA's have shopping carts you can take from the car to the elevator right into your unit. But it all comes down to personal choice and the the Condo complex itself!
Look at different units in different complexes make your choice from there !
First floor units with attached garages is a very small market.
