I agree, an engine is an engine, if it's rebuilt or not. if the motor functions as intended and doesn't smoke etc, price won't vary much between a good used car with a reman motor and one with an original motor. 
I've learned this the hard way when negotiating with an insurance company for the paypout of a totaled vehicle.
