Depends on how hard you study. It wont happen overnight.As your rating improves you play players with higher ratings also. You must improve every day,and learn from your mistakes. Maybe 6 months to a year.
It took me six years to be consistently above 1500, from what I recall. But I don't really know what an "average person" is
I was here for about a year before I went above 1500. That's here, not OTB. I didn't study, aside from looking over games where I lost without making really dumb moves.
If you study, 1500 should be easily attainable. I think, if I can get there, almost anyone can.
I would say I went from about 1200 to 1600 in 6 months in 1 hour/day.
THen, I went from 1600 to 1620 in 6 months at 1 hour/day :(
You will hit your "natural level" by fixing your glaring weaknesses. That might be 1300, or 1700. After that, it will be a grind to slowly improve even 50 points.

Oh man! Allan is awesome! I only knew of Olivia Busquet's interest in chess. I absolutely love challenges like that! Maybe 1500 is too low... :)
