You can absolutely sell your own home.  The list of "need to knows" provided by you are prerequisites.  In addition, make sure you disclose to the potential buyers that you are a Realtor.

Yes you always have to disclose if you are a licensed Realtor® 

The blog was for general public -  

I would always use the MLS and a Realtor to sell my house...even my own home.

Just sayin....
