Yes, it can decrease the value, but there is no precise way to determine by how much. The big cost factor with owning a salvage titled vehicle is the increase insurance cost. Some salvage title are due to damage and insurance write offs. Some salvage title are simply due to a police impound sale. and might otherwise be fine. As a buyer I tend to lop off 25% of KBB price for having a salvage title, possibly more if I see signs of collision repair/carfax or lengthy stays in an impound lot. How much more really depends on condition though.

You really don't want a salvage title car regardless of price.
