The lower credit score will be used to qualify, however if your concern is the interest rate you will get, this really only matters when you are attempting to obtain a conventional mortgage. If you are trying to obtain an FHA, VA, Section 184, or RD loan and as long as your score is over a 640, then your...
how much are the closing costs?
Closing costs vary, and will be different for every lender you talk to. However, if you are purchasing this is a very common area of negotiation.

You cannot receive funds back at closing unless you were getting an FHA 203k, however those funds are only for repairs.

i have a 603 fico score and i was wondering if theres a company that i would qualify for a mortgage with?
A mortgage professional should be able to let you know what you need to do to raise your score. If you are above a 640 you will have many more options for your mortgage than where you are currently.

My fiance just started a new job in a new field (car sales). Do we have any chance of getting a mortgage?

What is the best method to calculate my home's value before actually getting an appraisal?
You should call the realtor that sold you your house. Ask them to run a CMA on your property. You made them a nice amount of commission when you purchased it, so they should be nice enough to do this for you for free. It should only take them 5 minutes.

Any knowledgeable loan officer should be able to either advise you on the steps to take to...

Your lawyer should contact the mortgage company directly to get the appropriate reaffirmation paperwork to you. If they are unwilling to do so, try to contact them yourself. Once you have signed the reaffirmation paperwork with your lender, you will need to take the documentation to the bankruptcy...
