I'd be glad to talk with you specifically about your home's value and help you strategize.
Homes west of Leesburg are challenging to sell... and since there are many unique properties there, I have no clue which yours is or how to tell you the market is without knowing specifically where your property is. Please contact me directly. You can also go to http://www.20175homesales.com and get a computer generated Market Snapshot (this is a Leesburg zip code, but it works in Lovettsville, too). If you are interested in statistics, you can check http://www.mris.com, they have some great reports available.
I would suggest talking with your employer about a "Relocation Package". See what assistance they are offering you to move. If you have more questions about relocation packages, then please post separately.
So far as homes selling, if it is a job related move, please consult with your CPA regarding tax implications. In light of the tax consequences you might see the costs of moving differently.
The bottom line is that homes sell in any market. The key is VALUE. Buyers will buy a home if the value is high enough. Particularly when it is a job-related move at the request of the employer, the cost of relocation, including loss of equity and home value, should be part of the negotiations.
