You can list the house prior to min 3 months of your new home closing date in the current market.
The reason is you have enough time to market and sell your house and make the funds available for the settlement of the new home. And you can request the buyer to allow you to rent the house for a month or two any thing changes in the settlement of your new home.
Feel free to give me a call if you need any assistance.

This chart shows the last year averages for townhomes in 20148: http://www.rbintel.com/statistics/zip-code-report?zip=20148 In April it was 40 days. Other reports here we can narrow down by price and status show average 48 days on market for those that are sold; 32 days on market for those that are under contract; and 187 days on market for those that are active. Skewing that last stat is new homes which are general listings for extended periods of time - not for a specific home. I hope this helps. I would love to talk with you more about what to expect when listing your home in today's market. If you're not quite ready to talk to someone, you can order an automated report from www.SalesInMyNeighborhood.Info which will show you the closest (geographically) homes to you that are currently being marketed for sale or that have recently sold. Best of luck.
More info on general market conditions is available on my web site under "Market Stats" - check it out.... more
The down side is flight noise, the up side is "convenient to Dulles" - and I for one love being close to Dulles. The down side is that the home faces the road, the up side is that there isn't another home there. For every down side is an up side. However, some things are valued more than others and therefore all these things must be taken into consideration when pricing. I am happy to provide an opinion on marketing and sales prices if you'd like to connect me.... more
We really would need a lot more information to go on then what you have given. With days on market so low in Ashburn, there has to be some sort of issue with why your home hasn't sold and there are so many that I can think of that we really need more info to give you the best advice. Give us a buzz with more details so we could better answer your question.... more
