Salvage Title Labels

December 15th, 2010 2 comments

After collecting sales data for 6 months, I decided I need to label those coupes that I know are salvage titled as such. This is not only to assist shoppers in purchasing the right car, but I think it will help to more effectively represent the market as a whole. While rebuilt from salvage coupes can come out as good as new, their values will never hold as well as clean title vehicles. As such, they have skewed some of the sales figures and average price statistics. From now on, salvage titled coupes will no longer be included in the average price calculations, price trends charts, or price vs. mileage charts. Please note: coupes without the salvage title label are not necessarily clean titled. I just have not heard any different.
