By deposit, do you mean a deposit to hold an apartment during application process? or the security deposit for the lease?
The first; many landlords do not take deposits to hold an apartment, those that do is typically $500-1,000. A security deposit; varies from landlord to landlord and the credit application of the tenant. but I have seen anywhere from one to three months rent as a security deposit recently.

It really depends on the landlord but it runs anywhere between $500 to a $1000
