There really is no set answer to that. Depends upon yeast, OG, temperature fermented, etc. Some will finish a little high in the teens, some lower in the single digits, mine finished at 1.009.
The trick is not to bottle until you've had 3 or more consecutive days at the same gravity reading (whatever that might be).
When I was a new brewer, I checked gravities frequently, but now, I leave most beers in the primary a month, and take one final reading just for my notes. I don't know many beers that aren't ready in a month.
You might even find that waiting a few extra weeks before bottling will improve flavor and clarity, though if you've been on these forums long enough, you'll know how controversial that can be
Just do what works for you, eventually you'll get comfortable with your own system, and you'll still be making great homebrew.
