But to purchase for long term appreciation, I would say that Midway Hollow - a small area adjacent to Bluffview and Preston Hollow is probably the hottest area right now for single family residences with rather generous 1/4 to 1/2 acre lots. Price point generally runs anywhere from $ 300 k to 800 k.
10 years ago I'd say the M-streets and Lakewood but now that is pricey and the lots are relatively small. As far as having the most underrated intrinsic value for the price - I think near Northwest Dallas is probably a good bet and the very central location cannot be beat.
Hope it helps

It will depends on what you are looking for.
If you are looking for town home - uptown is still very hot by West Village. There is also State Thomas now. ANd Oaklawn is also very and much nicer than 8 years ago.
Another great area is Deep Elm in downtown Dallas. Downtown is very desirable area to live in the recent years. You need to check it out!
There is also the area by the Trinitiy river in N Oak Cliff. Some very nice gated community there. And there is also some sessin in the design district that is very very nice now.

I assume you're not wanting to go back to WV?
Call me maybe.
I think Bishop Arts and areas of Oak Cliff are continuing to improve with amazing residential and retail options that keep getting better.
Also, Lakewood has exploded with growth as has Uptown and the surrounding areas.
I think many of the areas outside of the "loop" are also exploding with population - just look at some of the growth rates over the past ten years (frisco for example is about 2,000%). People love the toll road going north from Dallas as it provides for an easy commute.
The areas surrounding Lakes Lewisville and Ray Hubbard are also extremely popular for obvious reasons
If you want a 3story townhome, Oak Lawn is on the rebound now. Also NE of downtown...east of 75 seems to be in the making of a comeback after the shakeout.
Then again it depends on how much you want to spend, where you might work and where you might play, how often you travel, etc, what style of home, age of the home, etc.
McKinney Avenue, Uptown, M Streets, Lakewood, University Park, Highland Park, Turtle Creek, Downtown Dallas name a few locations.
