Can I list my property on the MLS without an agent?

NO. Here is an explanation.

A Multiple Listing Service (MLS) is an association of real estate brokers and agents to cooperate with each other to buy and sell homes. By sharing properties for sale in MLS, properties sell faster. MLS brokers offer compensation to each other to make it worthwhile. In other words, help me sell mine and I will help you sell yours.

Without a system of compensation and standards for cooperation it does not work.  Before MLS, each broker sold their own listings. Buyers had to go to each broker to find out what listings they had.
