It depends on the series' popularity and on how fast it's licensed abroad. A couple of months is indeed a decent guess, but it does happen that series are released mere weeks after broadcast and sometimes even years.

In Japan, series tend to start releasing on blu-ray/DVD before the show finishes. For example the first volume of Blood Blockade Battlefront was already released and the show still has 1 more episode to go. It's the same for the first volume of Sound! Euphonium.

In North America it's hard to pinpoint an exact time frame as there's many factors that can come into play for when a show is released. Take Ping Pong and Noragami. Noragami originally aired the season before Ping Pong, but Ping Pong is getting released 1 week sooner than Noragami here. And My Little Monster, which aired more than a year before either of those shows isn't being released till about the same time.
