If I close my Citi card will it continue to age until it drops off of my credit report? I'm hoping to get a home in the next 2 or 3 years, so I just want to make sure my credit score won't be negatively affected by this move when the time comes.

Yes, it will continue to age and affect average age of accounts until it falls off in about 10 years.
