Hi, everyone.
This is from "Bloodman" by Robert Pobi.

This is a description of an old house.
I don't get the bold part. What does "not in the nomenclature" mean? What does "that" in italic refer to?

In 28 years it hadn’t changed – and not in the nomenclature of a real-estate agent telling you that it needed updating, although that was part of it; no, the stasis of the space was more visceral that that.

    In 28 years it hadn’t changed – and not in the nomenclature of a real-estate agent = In 28 years it hadn’t changed – and it has not changed in the jargon of a real-estate agent

    In 28 hears it hadn't changed, and when I say "it hasn't changed" I'm not speaking like a real-estate agent and trying to tell you it needs to be updated (redecorated and modernized), I'm saying something else.
