You need to do this on network-level, i dont think that's possible with
libvirt only.

One solution would be to specify an custom mac-address in the xml-file,
which your dhcp resolves to a fixed ip. It should be possibe to script this.

Another way would be to use plain preseed and run a script inside which
tells an server (http with an simple script) which ip adress your new vm
has. Then you could query this server for the ip.

But there are allready tools for such user cases, i would suggest you to
look into foreman [1], this may solves your problem more elegant than a
custom solution.
