Many baby boomers in their youth sang in packed cars over an 8-track tape the refrain of “My Generation” by The Who: “Hope I die before I get old.” Of course, that was followed by Bob Dylan’s “Forever Young.”

Now many members of the Me-ist generation (ages 57 to 75) are approaching their dotage in homes bought when they viewed “Thirtysomething” as the television show of their peers. Today they are sitting on high equity, growing home values and a lingering defiance of expectations — in this case moving.
