It sounds like you first need to know the market value of your home, contact a real estate professional to do a market evaluation we do that at no charge to you, this will help you put together a plan to be able to more forward. The lubbock rental market is very strong right now so that could be an option but getting with a professional to determine where you are is a first step.

What Subdivision are you in, some areas are performing better than others. Even though your home is just four to five months old, it is now pre-owned and you will do well to get 95% of the price on a same plan brand new and never lived in. Unless you have a very special and unique home, you will need to be aggressive on getting the property sold.

Whatever area your home is in, you are going to need to find a good agent who will advise you properly so you don't end up carrying a vacant home after you leave.

Your question is difficult to answer without a lot more information and actually viewing the property..

You can always put up a for sale by owner sign and offer to work with agents and pay them 3% as some will sell a home that isn't listed.. I personally usually avoid for sale by owners as I have been burned a few times.

Would you husband's new employer be willing to offer him a buyout? Can you rent it for at least your mortgage amount?
