Is it worth the money to join? No. It's a total waste of money. And you'll see some questions here on Trulia about people who've signed up, and then they can't terminate their subscription.
As the other answers point out, you can get accurate, up-to-date information free from any Realtor. Or as Dan suggests, go to http://www.realtor.com
Realtytrac may list homes in default that are not actually foreclosures for sale.
Any foreclosure that is actually for sale will be on the MLS and a real estate agent can send you these listings (and set you up on an alert so you are among the first to hear about new foreclosure listings!). And this will be at NO cost to you and will be more accurate than RealtyTrac.

There's just so much more to the whole thing. Like the answers below, your best option is to have a Realtor look at it for you. I can't think of anyone who would charge you for figuring out your comps for you, and determining the value of a property or of your own property. Knowledge of the market counts a lot, plus you really need to pull up and look at the listings that were sold to see what their condition was, and what the terms of the sale were (foreclosure etc.). Conditions are changing quickly.
Anyway, you get the idea. You don't need to join realty trac to get the information you need. Just call a Realtor and they'll do it for you for free!!
You can go to http://www.realtor.com and look at real foreclosures for sale there. You can have it send you daily updates per your custom requirements. You could also ask a realtor to send you the same information.
Below is a blog that explains what realtytrack listings really are worth.
Below is a question asked about them being legal. Notice the lack of a reply by trulia staff. Trust me, it has been seen by them. They simply refuse to reply as they know they are in the wrong.
Seriously Robert, you have to do your own research on pricing or get an agent to do it. No automated process I've seen yet does the job of a real person analyzing comps.
all the best
